“Perfect Family Getaway”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a fantastic place to stay and great location. Everything you could wish for was provided and plenty of outdoor space to accommodate 9 people. Couldn't get the children out of the pool from morning to dusk. 3 great patio areas, for those who wanted sun, shade or quiet time away from the pool. Views from our outside breakfast area, really set you up for the day with views of the sea and coastline from Marbella down to Gibraltar. Will definitely recommend this Villa to friends and family and hope to return there again soon. Thank you to Trevor for answering questions before our stay and to Jenni for seeing us in and making sure we provisions for our first night.

Thank you so much Tracy for this lovely review and it was a pleasure communicating with you throughout the process. To quote my Housekeeper 'Tracy left the house so clean and tidy the cleaners want to buy her a 'bottle' if she ever comes back' - now that is a FIRST :-)

“A Peaceful, Spacious and Spectacular Villa with Stunning Views”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We booked Villa Karma for a surprise family get together for my Mum’s 60th birthday and we could not have chosen a better venue. Set atop a hill, it provides breathtaking views of the mountains and coastline of the Costa Del Sol, with a pretty and well-maintained garden area, spacious terraces and a great big swimming pool. Although the pool isn’t heated, over the course of our week’s stay it warmed from bracing to refreshing under the glorious Mediterranean sunshine so we got full use of it, even in early April. A generous drive is complemented by ample room for on street parking so there’s space for a hire car or two, which you’ll want to reach the many local attractions and amenities if, that is, you decide you even want to leave the house!

The villa itself is spectacular. Split over two levels, it feels comfortable and luxurious and even with ten of us (including two toddlers) there was still so much room that whether you were in the mood for hanging out with the group or some peace and quiet, there was ample space for everybody. The bedrooms are comfortable, clean and well-furnished, four of them on the lower floor which stays nice and cool even on the hottest days. The Villa provides many excellent facilities such as satellite TV, a Sonos speaker, a DVD play and even a Nintendo Wii. There are also plenty of outdoor power points so you can charge your phones or listen to music outside in the sunshine. The well-appointed kitchen provides the usual amenities plus the bonus of a washing machine, dishwasher and tumble drier and if all that wasn’t enough, there’s a great barbecue outside because in a climate this glorious, who wants to eat indoors?

What really gives the Villa Karma that extra, magical feeling is in the little touches all around the house from the owner and his family. A well-stocked library of books in the study is peppered with toys, ornaments and sentimental knick-knacks and in the children’s bedrooms a lovingly curated collection of cherished toys provides an exciting welcome for little ones, making a holiday house feel like a holiday home from the moment you walk in the door.

Trevor and his housekeeper Jennifer could not be friendlier or more helpful, and ever responsive to any questions or queries during the stay. The welcoming bouquet of flowers for my Mum’s birthday and accompanying card was an especially thoughtful touch. Trevor’s also an invaluable source of advice for places to go, from the nearby port and beaches of Estepona to wonderful restaurants in the mountains, historic Moorish villages and even a rescue sanctuary where you can help the volunteers by taking a rescue dog or two out for a walk in the stunning scenery.

Thanks to Trevor and his villa, our holiday exceeded our every hope and expectation. It’s a wonderful base from which to explore a friendly and beautiful part of the world.

Really enjoyed our stay at this villa. we stayed with lots of friends and family, and couldn't find fault with any of it. all the rooms were large, even the ones without airconditioning never got too hot - and when we were there, it was 40 degrees outside. We all had cars, and it was easy to travel to Puerto banus, Marbella, aqualand, plus the white village in the mountains. It was also easy to get to the beach, although didn't think the beach nearby was that good - much better to stay in the villa if you weren't doing anything, as the views were amazing. We also had a couple of nights out in Estepona and Port Duquesa which is nice to visit. We all really enjoyed our visit, and wished we had booked two weeks! the pool was quite deep, but we kept a good eye on all the kids, so no problem there. There were also loads of inflatables for the kids to play with. The wifi was fine, and there was a great music system to hook up to, plus plenty of books and a computer to keep the kids entertained.

Thank you so much for your great review and I'm so pleased you had such a great time. Your point about the beach is interesting (the sand on the Costa del Sol is not amazing) because I personally enjoy the fact that it's guarded in the season and you can walk for over a mile along the sand. A lot of locals prefer Monte Cristo which is in a gorgeous bay that you pass on the way to Estepona Port. I can't tell you how many guests actually say 'we never wanted to leave the house / view / pool and that is music to my ears :-) Come back soon.........

“Amazing Views and great house!”
Reviewed 9 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

This is an amazing house atop a hill near Estepona that boasts great views, but once you get there you will see that the view is so awesome, it is hard to leave the house! I saw some other reviews that the beach was too far away, but we had no problem walking down to the beach in about 10 minutes tops, the walk back up is uphill, but works. There are 5 bedrooms, all are very roomy, three of which have Air Conditioning. The other two have ceiling fans, and that is fine as they are on the lower level and never get very hot. We stayed with 7 people so had plenty of room, but there is ample space for 10 as stated on the website. The owner and housekeeping was extremely responsive for any questions we had before the trip and during our stay. We stayed for a glorious 2 weeks! And can't wait to book this house again.

It was fun to see the Facebook posts from you guys during your stay and you obviously had a great time at the house. I always love to welcome visitors from 'over the pond' (I mean American not Holland) and i'm glad you all got back safely to your respective international homes. Come again anytime your children's 'Winner Winner Chicken Dinner' review will remain my favourite for a long time to come.
